How Watershed works

Companies use Watershed's software to measure their carbon footprint comprehensively, plan and execute on steps to reduce emissions, and share results with investor-grade reporting.

Measure your entire footprint, fast

Measure in days, not months. Upload raw data from the tools you already use, and Watershed handles the rest.

Watershed shows you where every kilogram of carbon comes from. Analyze Scope 3 emissions with granular data on specific suppliers. Benchmark against your industry and identify high-emitting vendors and categories.
